With the primary season in full-swing, it made us look back fondly at the 2012 election and remember that time Vice President Joe Biden absolutely destroyed new Speaker of the House (then VP candidate) on live television.
Paul Ryan went into the debate thinking he was going to defeat Biden with bullshit talking points and Tea Party nonsense — he was sadly mistaken.
